Forms: Possible to answer questions with integers?

Hi Everyone,

I’m working on a project that needs to ask a survey-style list of questions, re-asked daily, where the user rates answers on a 1-5 or 1-10 scale, so we can perform trending over time and statistical analysis.

Is this possible? Is anyone doing something similar?

I was having trouble with my slots accepting <3 character values, so I made the response lookup numbers 100, 200, 300, etc… a little clunky, but good enough for now. But… it accepts this for the first question only, and re-asks the second question. Possible that it’s trying to associate the answer with the first question only?

Do I need to write out the slot, flush it, and loop the form somehow?

Any other ideas or suggestions?


Take a luck at duckling and this blog post on entity extraction. You’ll also find a working example of number extraction in the financial-demo. You’ll see use of the inform intent to handle number only responses.
